Orlando has a daunting task ahead.

They either have to beat us 3 straight times; or, win Games 6 & 7 on the road. And, if they don't win Games 3 & 4, then they'll have to do both.

Don't feed the trolls.

Feels great to be up 2-0! We haven't been up 2-0 since the Jazz series. :D

we are lucky. but you need luck sometimes but we gave up 2 layups at the end of the 4th and they butchered it.

seeing courtney Lee jump i was thinking to myself oh S##t

this is the first time we won soley on defense the entire playoffs.

Lamar and ariza are 100% necessities to be resigned

they tried. DH had only 4 fouls in an Ot game and one came in OT.

So i guess those people who thought getting him into foul trouble was a good strategy. not.


Lakers got quite a few calls also.

Orlando played damn good and we still won. You can tell this yeam is a s focused as they have ever been all post season! Big game 3 in Orlando. Usually the team coming home wins game 3. It should be a blast!

Yeah if we were playing like we did against Houston we would've lost this game for sure. It's great to see we have continued to improve since the Denver series.

We've gotta go into Orlando and grit out a victory, the sooner the better.

Orlando has already bit, going with a bigger line-up, which is hampering the team's offense.


Look for them to play better, naturally, in Orlando; but, if they keep going with this big line-up, the Lakers will probably have a great shot in 1, or 2 of the games, as Orlando's scoring is hampered.

Don't feed the trolls.

That Kobe-Pau connection at the end was reminiscent of the finish of the Christmas day game when Gasol took over. Great plays to close it out, should have been won in regulation (Howard's goaltend w/his hand through the basket), but we still got the win. Now we just need to take at least one in Orlando.

Yeah... thank god he missed that. Could easily be 1-1 right now if it wasn't for his missed shot.

we've won Game 3 or 4 in every series, so far.

But, if we lose Game 3, we'll without a doubt hear the "what's wrong with the Lakers banter".

One advantage we have, is that Orlando has already tipped it's hand, and we still beat them. Other than shooting better, what else do they have up their sleeves?

Don't feed the trolls.

they did tip their hand. and we played awful and squeaked out a lucky win. thats big because we have more wiggle room now

though this laker team plays better with no wiggle room

we all know howards laayups will fall more in orlando and the shots will go in more. we justt need to make sure we play smart and efficient
